Far Cry 5 System requirements

So, finally, the hyped open world game which you are all waiting for eagerly wants you to know what it takes to run the game on your PC. Recently Ubisoft has revealed the specification which you will need in order to run the game. While Steam hasn’t updated the game page which I don’t know when is going to be updated.

Far Cry 5

The minimum requirement as shown below shows that you need a good mid-end graphics card along with at least a quad-core processor like i5 or FX series processor. So, it means it can easily run on PC’s using the Ryzen 3 processors as well as the latest Core i3 8100.

MINIMUM CONFIGURATION

OS: Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64-bit versions only)
PROCESSOR: Intel Core i5-2400 @ 3.1 GHz or AMD FX-6300 @ 3.5 GHz or equivalent
VIDEO CARD: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 or AMD R9 270 (2GB VRAM with Shader Model 5.0 or better)
System RAM: 8GB
Resolution: 720p
Video Preset: Low

The graphics card requirement is GTX 670 or R9 270 which are outdated graphics card but one can estimate that it needs an equivalent of GTX 1050 Ti or RX 570 for running properly. I think it’s pretty OK and not so high because the game is much improved graphically than ever before. But amazes me is that it states that the PC using these components can run this game at 720p low settings. I don’t think that a game can be so much intensive that can crush a GTX 1050 Ti with an i5 so easily. Well, we have to see when the game releases on March 27.

RECOMMENDED CONFIGURATION (60 FPS)

OS: Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64-bit versions only)
PROCESSOR: Intel Core i7-4770 @ 3.4 GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.2 GHz or equivalent
VIDEO CARD: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 or AMD R9 290X (4GB VRAM with Shader Model 5.0 or better)
System RAM: 8GB
Resolution: 1080p
Video Preset: High

Recommended settings require you to use a mid-high end graphics card like GTX 970 or an R9 290X which are equivalent to RX 570 with a decent Quad-Core processor like i7 4770 or Ryzen 5 1600. A Ryzen 5 series processors are right now best bang for the buck and should be used for a game like this.

4K 30 FPS CONFIGURATION

OS: Windows 10 (64-bit version only)
PROCESSOR: Intel Core i7-6700 @ 3.4 GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1600X @ 3.6 GHz or equivalent
VIDEO CARD: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 or AMD RX Vega 56 (8GB VRAM with Shader Model 5.0 or better)
System RAM: 16GB
Resolution: 2160p
Video Preset: High

4K 60 FPS CONFIGURATION

OS: Windows 10 (64-bit version only)
PROCESSOR: Intel Core i7-6700K @ 4.0 GHz or AMD Ryzen 7 1700X @ 3.4 GHz or equivalent
VIDEO CARD: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI or AMD RX Vega 56 CFX (8GB VRAM with Shader Model 5.0 or better)
System RAM: 16GB
Resolution: 2160p
Video Preset: High/Ultra

As for running the game at 4K 60fps, you will need GTX 1080 SLI or AMD RX Vega 560 CrossfireX. The recommended CPU is the quad-core i7 6700K or Ryzen 7 1700X which is an Octa-Core processor. So, If you are planning to play the game at 4K, you will need powerful GPU or else just forget it. But the actual worrying thing is that how can you afford a GTX 1080 or a 1080 Ti at a time like this where everything is overpriced?

Well, you can enjoy the Far Cry 5 gameplay in the mean time:-
